1. The Original Rhinestone Cowboy, Loy Bowlin
Bowlin (1909-1995) was an outsider artist from McComb, Mississippi. His artwork largely included bejeweling his clothing, Cadillac, home and even his dentures with thousands of rhinestones. The house, which was in Mississippi, has been moved in an effort to preserve it and now is on display at the Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin.

9. Key Guns
From at least the 17th century untill the mid 1800s, some lock makers integrated guns into lock keys for use by jailers. The idea was that if the prisoner tried any funny stuff, the jailer could fire a round through the lock at the prisoner. Some of the key guns were very basic, requiring the jailer to use a a cigar, cigarette or match to ignite a touchhole, while others used sophisticated percussion cap and flintlock mechanisms.
